Functional requirements

  1. [Want] Objects are always referenced by PURLs.
  2. [Must] All objects are "Googleable". That is, objects are always referenced by URLs that

  3. [Must] Collections are available through an OAI provider.
  4. [Want] Collections are accessible to the RLG Cultural Materials Initiative, DLF Aquifer,
    and other large-scale federated systems.
  5. [Must] All existing PURLs continue to work.
  6. [Want] There is a shopping cart and/or bookmarking system that allows users to
    return to selected items at a later time.
  7. [Want] Reproductions of selected items may be purchased.
  8. [Must] Tools for delivery are shared across collections as much as
    possible, while allowing for arbitrary customization of the interface.
